Guys I finally got my hands on the Mac Snowball Holiday Collection! I am sooo excited about this collection from Mac and was anxiously waiting for the release date! I missed out on the oh so famous Whisper of Gilt in last year’s holiday collection, so I was on a mission to grab this gold highlighter this year. After crazy lineups, and being pushed and shoved around in a Mac store by anxious buyers, I purchased the three things that were absolute must buys for me from this collection. I purchased the Mac Snowball Face Bag in Gold, Mac Snowball Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Stylishly Merry and Mac Snowball Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Delicate Drift.
Ok so for starters lets talk about the packaging of this collection. It is a metallic crushed rose gold packaging that is absolutely stunning and probably one of the prettiest holiday collections I have seen from Mac Cosmetics.
Here’s another shot of the items I purchased from this collection.
Aren’t these soooo pretty! The highlighter and the eye shadows have a snowflake embossed design and well, I am scared to swatch these guys because I don’t want to ruin the snowflake 🙂
The Face Bag or Glow Getter in Gold featured above retails for $49.50 US and I believe $58.00 CDN, comes in this sequinned pouch and includes an Extra Dimension Skin Finish (basically a highlighter) in Whisper of Gilt and a makeup brush. The packaging is stunning, and I love the gold on the brush as well.
So as I mentioned above, this is a limited edition highlighter and it sold out last year. Definitely a cult favourite, and now I have it!
Featured above is the Mac Snowball Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Stylishly Merry. This retails for $26.00 CDN. This shade sold out fast. It is a metallic gold shade and is absolutely stunning!
Featured above is another Snowball Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in the shade Delicate Drift. This is a light pink shade with sparkle in it. Perfect for the holidays!
Here are some more pictures because I couldn’t stop snapping shots of this snowball collection! I would definitely go and try getting your hands on this limited edition collection from Mac Cosmetics. The packaging alone is worth it!!!
